    Decided that as my first mod I would try a cheap upgrade of the angel eyes.
    My car is fitted as standard with xenons and as far as I can see from the handbook the angel eyes are simply an H8 bulb. My question is I have seen some led's but assume they will give me an error message so do I just go for a cheap pair of bulbs at around £8 ? Or considering they are lit at all times should I go for a more expensive and presumably better quality set.
    All opinions or experience most welcome especially concerning the led's.
    Thanks guys

    You can get error free led h8 bulbs on eBay for about £40 which are designed to work with the angel lights.
    Swapping h8 bulbs for a better quality b8 bulb ie philips or osram ain't going to improve visibility or performance.

    Sorry obviously didn't make my intentions clear, I meant change the standard bulbs for xenon one's to try and get a whiter light to suit the xenons

    Then you have to get LED H8 bulbs as they have whiter light output to match your HID xenons.
    You cannot put HID Xenons for angel lights.
